Before you can assign mobile credentials to cardholders and visitors, you must purchase the service of a mobile credential provider and configure mobile credential profiles in your system in either the Mobile Credential Manager role or in the Access control task.

Before you begin

Purchase one or more services from a mobile credential provider.

What you should know

  • A mobile credential profile links a part number from your mobile credential provider to your subscription so that you can create mobile credentials in Security Center.
  • If HID Global is your mobile credential provider, you must purchase subscription user licenses and add credential types (identified by a part number) for each format you want to support. For each credential type in use, you must configure a mobile credential profile in Security Center.
  • You cannot have more than one HID mobile credential from the same mobile keyset, even if the credentials use different part numbers. The keysets are configured on the HID side. For more information, contact your HID representative.
  • Starting in Security Center 5.10, you can create mobile credential profiles using the Mobile Credential Manager role. If the role is created, you can no longer create the profiles in the Access control task.
    NOTE: It is recommended to use the Mobile Credential Manager role to create mobile credential profiles.
